Loving my skin with Yves Saint Laurent Pure Shots

I haven’t always loved my skin.  As a child I hated my freckles and would have done almost anything to get rid of them.  Through adulthood it wasn’t too bad, and I joked about my fabulous fatness reducing the amount of wrinkles. However, age comes to us all and in my mid fifties I have quite a few wrinkles and fine lines, some as a result of weight loss, but some simply because I have lived life.  I have come to terms with these marks that remind me of what I have been through and how I feel right now.

Woman do Life, We do skin

I was lucky enough to attend the Yves Saint Laurent launch of their Pure Shots range earlier this year.  I was excited as this range is said to have reinvented the skincare experience. It was really fascinating to listen to the story behind the products, and learn about the natural ingredients that make up this range.  The more I listened the more excited I got! The range is made up of Hydra Bounce Essence-in-Lotion, Perfect Plumper Cream, Y Shape Serum, Light Up Serum and Lines Away Serum, and Night Reboot.  A forerunner in skincare YSL Beauty is challenging the status quo in more ways than one. The approach taken by YSL Beauty is to consider lifestyle, the environment and skincare.    The result of this scientific journey is the Night Reboot serum and the Pure Shots Range, which I have been lucky to try. The claim is that a daily dose of skin essential elements contained in the products act in synergy with potent botanicals to produce a triple effect: The skin is reloaded and treated at its core. Major marks on the skin (lines, wrinkles, sagginess, dullness) are corrected The skin is instantly and visibly improved, with long-term correction of the appearance of urban aging signs.

What I love about it!

Aroma is probably my favourite sense and I love soothing myself with an aromatherapy bath.  These products are just gorgeous to use.  The beautiful aromas just remind you of all the goodness in the range.    They go on smoothly and don’t feel heavy or greasy at all. The botanicals are a key ingredient and as you apply them you know that you are doing your skin a favour.  I have been using them for a couple of months now, and I don’t know if I am looking younger, but I am definitely getting compliments.  My skin feels plumper and smoother and I am not getting as stressed looking in the mirror. An added bonus is that all the packaging is recyclable which is great for the environment and for my pocket! I have tried the Pure Shots Hydra Bounce, Lines Away, Y Shape Serum,  Light Up Serum and the Perfect Plumper Cream. Thank you to YSL Beauty for gifting me these products to try.  My skin thanks you too. The products are available from Brown Thomas, Arnotts, and Debenhams.


There was a huge part of me fighting against turning anything like fifty. It happens though and there is nothing we can do to fight it. Well we can’t fight the chronology of years and minutes ticking by but we can stay fabulous. I try to be fabulous, despite having a few things I am fighting against like RA, Diabetes and Pernicious Anaemia. This blog is simply about me embracing life. Food, make-up, fashion and more. My trials and tribulations. I hope you enjoy!
